In the heart of Malaysia lies a metropolitan city redefining traditions and expectations. With its modern façade and quick way of life, Kuala Lumpur is a jewel of a city and one of the busiest and most metropolitan in all of South East Asia. With its close proximity to Singapore and world class airport, the city is thriving and its technological infrastructure is one of Asia’s most prized assets.

Kuala Lumpur is the capital city of Malaysia and is the most developed city in the country. With over 1.6 million residents, it’s also a decent size.

The city is rife with energy and richness. Both in its food, culture and in its people. It also boasts gorgeous year round temperatures due to its tropical rainforest climate.

Kuala Lumpur is also home to the Petronas Towers. They’re known as the tallest twin towers in the world and were the tallest buildings in the world for a few years in the early 2000s. The towers were featured prominently in the movie Entrapment with Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Travel Tip: When we were in Malaysia, we found the fruit to be some of the best in the world. With its gorgeous temperatures and lush fields, Malaysia has almost every fruit you can hope to find at ridiculously low prices for the majority of the year. As such there are both fresh fruit stands and milkshake or smoothie shops on every other corner. They pride themselves on their vast selection of perfectly ripened fruit and their quick service. If you find yourself in Malaysia, make sure you try out a fruit shake, I guarantee you’ll be impressed.

      Yasmine, cupping looks pretty crazy. We didn’t try it while we were there but I have heard of it before. Seeing that I feel fairly healthy at the moment I’m not sure I would want to mess with walking out covered in bruises and become worried that my health was failing. If I ever get really sick I’ll add it to my list of possible alternative treatments though. 😉

    Charles, it’s unfortunate that many visitors don’t try the vast selection of tropical fruits in KL like you do.

    Although Thailand fruits are superior, they do send it over to Malaysia. As a result we do enjoy amazing number of exotic and weird tropical fruits.

    Anyway, did you go to the Islamic museum ?

      After having spent over 5 months in Thailand Iskandar I won’t disagree with your comment about Thailands great fruit however I found the fruitshakes in Malaysia to be both awesome in price as well as taste. That was definitely as true in KL as it was in the many other cities and towns we visited while being in Malaysia.

      I hope it doesn’t shock too many people however we generally don’t go to a lot of museums on our travels. We hit a few here or there as our schedule permits and as our whims strike us but they’re never at the forefront of our travels. They also tend to get pushed onto days that it’s better to be inside than outside. We had great weather so never got to see any museums in KL while we were there.

    Ahhh I love this post – I was in Malaysia last September and LOVED the towers, especially the view at night! Although I gotta say when it comes to the fruit recommendation, watch out for the durian. NOT for the faint of heart…

      Hi Tom, Thanks for checking us out!
      Next time I’m in Southeast Asia I’ll have to try durian. Didn’t try it the first time around, and I’ve been regretting it ever since.
